The Overland falls into the Klim food chain as a more light-weight version of something like the Latitude. In recent years, we've seen the Latitude, we've seen the Badlands Pro, the Overland is going to be full-scale Gore-tex. It's a two-layer construction. And remember, it's an outer shell. The Gore-tex liner is not removable; waterproof, breathable, guaranteed for life. You're investing in Gore-tex because it keeps you shielded from Mother Nature, but also allows you to breathe. Remember, I did mention tactical outer shells, which is what Klim does; they let you choose whether it's a thermal liner, or how you want to beef up your base and mid-layers underneath. But really, they're meant to be 4-season pieces of apparel.
The Overland also takes a lot of its inspiration from something like the Traverse, which is an off-road enduro piece that a lot of people were using on the street. The Overland is going to come with your D3O armour; it comes with everything you need right off the rack, and rock-solid. And, watch our detailed breakdown video of the Overland pants by Peter Waring to my left as well. We don't want to break them down. We did that in a separate video. Now keep in mind too, as you're seeing this first glance, click here, subscribe to RevZilla TV, and leave us your comments; love to hear your questions as well.
Let's dive right in on sizing. So, Peter, 6', 195, 42" chest; he has actually a little bit more muscular legs as well on this outfit. You see the way that he's filling it out, but he is wearing a size large. It's the same size that Peter wears in the Traverse. We find the fit is not that much different. One of the things we did notice, and I'm going to nitpick it a little bit, is if Peter raises his arms, it's a little bit boxy down here under the arms. They've changed the vent configuration. I'm going to show that in a second. But, if you can see how it hangs; love to see some maybe cinching on this jacket. I'm not sure how we could slightly pull that off. It's feedback back up the flagpole to clients. But also keep in mind, we ship for free and exchange for free; no restocks when you need to send it back. So, don't fret if the only place you can find it is with us, online and you want to take that chance on sizing.
Now, reeling that back for a second, let's talk a little bit more highly about this outfit. It's really 4-seasons, which means you're waterproof where you beef up the thermal layers underneath for the winter, but in the summer, you have plenty of ventilation and it's going to be able to go through it and keep you cool. In spring and fall, motorcycling is typically an easier time of the year for most people depending on your temper or your tolerance for waterproofing. So, the key things here, big changes over the Traverse; down the arm, you're going to see there are big vertical vents now that are water resistant zippers that tie in with the Gore-tex integrated waterproof laminate here. But, there's your intakes on both sides.
On the Traverse, they used to be under the arms. They're a little harder, a little bit more out of the way. Now, you have a little bit more access to them. Basic hand-warmer pockets on the front. And, turn around; I'm going to show them the back really quickly here. This is the big feature here for summertime riding -- big scoops on the back, big exhausts that are going to allow that free-flowing air to come out. Turn back around to the front for me, Peter; musical chairs here. Now looking at the shell itself, it's going to be 840D Cordura in impact areas. You can see it in this darker grey. Remember there's a black version of this outfit as well. So, dark grey up here around the shoulders, along the arms, end of the sleeve, areas that are going to be more prone to abrasion. You saw it on the back of the jacket. And, it's an abrasion resistant textile that's not Cordura that you are going to see. It's a little softer. It's not quite crunchy. It has a nice feel to it in the main construction.
Other thing I want to call out is we talked about armour, D3O armour included. And if you do the math and you bought a Traverse, which is less street-centric and a much different style, and added the D3O to it later, it would actually be more expensive to do that. In the Overland, you're getting it all in one shot. So D3O, EVO armour, XT, extended temperature; it's molecular armour. On impact, it disperses the energy. You can see it's that orange armour, it's very flexible, it's very comfortable. But, the XT rating means that even when you go really deep into the temperature range, it's still going to be comfortable against your body, it's still going to do its job in the case of impact.
Shoulders and then, elbows, you're also getting a CE Level 1 back protector that you could upgrade, but it comes stock here in the back which is a nice feature. Now, looking up to the collar, some of the creature comforts and nuances; nice big fleece-lined collar here. Peter rocks a Traverse Jacket. He was mentioning to us that it works for him, it's a stand-up collar. It's really a multi-season touring style outfit. Big YKK zippers, Vislon pulls. Notice it was a two-way zipper. So if you're on an upright bike, you can give yourself a little room to flare it at the bottom. And also, if we look at the reflective scheme, this is something we're seeing come down the pipe from Klim. As they're looking at reflective, they're saying they want to make sure that the humanoid form can be recognized by somebody that's just seeing headlights hit a dark rider at night.
So, shoulders, elbows, forearms, down toward the sleeve, you're going to see it as you work your way down the pants, and see how that would light up, and be bright, and make sure that somebody has a better chance of knowing you're a person on a bike, and they can stop accordingly. Velcro going all the way down with a snap at the collar. Basic on the inside; remember, it's a technical shell. You're going to add your own layers to it. So, mesh lining, iPod pocket, all YKK zippers throughout; some cinching here on the bottom, but again, it's not going to do anything around those kidney areas. You even have loops to be able sneak your iPod or headphone wires all the way up.
Now, turn backwards for me one more time, Peter. I'll walk a little bit more in depth through the back. Pull-cinching here up along the back of the neck for the collar; we talked about that fleece lining, its wicking. Reflectivity, you see that with these big pulls, and then the drop seat that comes all the way down. Look at this. This cut is much more for an upright or three-quarter riding position. I'm not going to recommend it for the tuck at all.
